Andre Leu, President of IFOAM – Organics International, the only global umbrella organization of the organic world, joins host Holli Cederholm on The Farm Report for a briefing on climate change and agriculture. Leu was on-site in Paris for the COP21 Climate Conference in late 2015, and shares his thoughts on the new international agreement on climate change, and on why utilization of land is really a big deal for curbing climbing carbon in the atmosphere. An organic farmer with more than 40 years of experience in organic agriculture, Leu also distills the Myths of Safe Pesticides from his 2014 book of the same name.
